Getaway drivers like Baby know that the true secret to a successful heist (and escape) is your choice of soundtrack. If there's one thing that Edgar Wright's Baby Driver delivers, it's perfectly choreographed action set to a heart-pumping soundtrack. From the smooth sounds of Earl and Bob's "Harlem Shuffle" on Baby's morning coffee run to the high energy of Queen's "Brighton Rock" while battling Baby's nemesis, the music playing in the background of elevates each moment in the film from ordinary to epic.

Movie Pilot asked fans on our Facebook video channel "Super News" what song they would play in their getaway car as they made their escape, and the responses we received prove that our fans not only have killer taste in music, but that their choices could have just as easily complimented Baby's driving as he drifts his getaway car like a bat out of hell.
